94th Precinct


Not too neighborly

A man allegedly robbed his neighbor in the front vestibule of their Metropolitan Avenue apartments on April 5.

The victim told police he walked into the vestibule of his apartment building between Bedford and Driggs avenues at 4:30 pm to find his neighbor waiting for him with a knife.

The neighbor demanded the victim property’s, so he handed over his cash and the neighbor ran off, cops reported.

Fast bikes

Someone stole a collection of boutique bike parts out of a man’s Henry Street storage closet on March 26.

The man told police he went into the basement of his apartment building between Nassau and Norman avenues at 6 pm and found the door open, the lock broken, and all of his bike components and frames missing.

Late-night break-in

A man woke up to find a burglar rummaging through his Calyer Street apartment on April 6.

The victim told police that he woke up in his abode between Oak and Lorimer streets at 5 am to find a large man wearing all-white clothes wandering through the apartment with a flashlight.

The tenant yelled and the burglar ran out through the door to the backyard. After the burglar left, the tenant found that he was missing $100 in cash. The victim told police that he often leaves the back door unlocked.

Not very charitable

An unknown man cashed a $15,000 check written by a non-profit organization and meant for a contractor sometime before April 3.

The company, located on Kingsland Avenue between N. Henry Street and Greenpoint Avenue, contacted police at noon after the contractor called them to say it had never received the check, even though it had been cashed months earlier. The company has not recovered the money.
